The whole of Design Academy Eindhoven’s new department Food Non Food has transferred to Milan for a new exhibition “Eat shit,” which delves into the politics of how, where and why we eat.  Nothing deserves our attention more than food – it binds us, it fuels us, and the myriad of issues concerning its production, distribution and consumption touch on some of humanity’s most fundamental problems.

16 students and their teachers will work live during Salone del Mobile in a space that is part exhibition, part public laboratory. Here we will not just share projects concerning contemporary food culture, but explore the necessary relationship between education and exhibition.

Food is life. Input leads to output.  So while on topic it makes sense to also examine one of foods stinkiest consequences – shit and waste.  Shit is your print-out, the great revealer of a person’s health and culture.

“Eat Shit” is innovative, it is technologically astute, but it is also critical - a protest against contemporary realities, which leave people divided and often- times hungry.
